Spalding House Family Day

In conjunction with Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday, the museum also holds a free Family Day at its location in Makiki Heights, with entertainment and an art activity. A free shuttle bus will run between the Honolulu Museum of Art and Spalding House, so you can enjoy two different events in one day.

February 21: Kawaii

Kawaii key chains: Rainbows, cupcakes, kittens, oh my! Kids will get a chance to mold their own mini kawaii (cute) object out of clay and attach it to a key chain. 

Storytelling: Join our favorite fairy grandmother, Susie Roth, for an afternoon of fun, magic, and stories! Noon-12:30pm and 1:30-2pm.

Drawing contest: Kids ages 1 to 17 are encouraged to enter! The museum gives contestants a theme and drawing supplies. The winner receives a Supporting Membership to the Honolulu Museum of Art ($100 value), and his or her artwork is used to create the following month’s event brochure and is posted on the museum's website.

Reminder: It's the last day to see Orvis Artist in the Museum Ted Clark in the Surface Gallery!

Looking ahead:

March 20: Identify Yourself
In today’s world, our identities are often recorded using one’s own fingerprint. Kids will use their fingers to make a piece of art that is one of a kind, and completely unique to them. 

April 17: Plastic Fantastic?
Check out the Plastic Fantastic? exhibition and look at the history of plastic and how it can be used as an art making material. Kids will have a chance to view photographs, contemporary works of art, and make their own piece of art using, you guessed it, plastic!
